Sequencing Platform Companies
Although Illumina is dominating next ten sequencing, there are several other sequencing platform companies on the market and several more with platforms in development (a trend that is likely to accelerate over the next few years). There is also a growing list of “former sequencing companies” in the NGS Necropolis. These lists can be sorted and filtered by the sequencing method, detection method, as well as single molecule vs amplified.
Currently Available Platforms:
The following companies have sequencing platforms currently on the market (still being sold and supported).
Platforms in Development
